So...today is Wednesday and as such it is time to get on the ball and show off my desk and tell you what I have been up to this week! I enjoyed last week so much I decided to set my alarm to alert me in needed join in the fun going on at Julia's blog Stamping Ground and WOYWW! Check it out and come join in the fun!
What a quick run through of a week...It seems that it was just yesterday that I posted! WOW! Time goes by fast considering I am retired and have very few obligations...read an article on that...seems us old farts (SS or OAP depending on of where you are located) have already been so many places and done so many things that we have huge frames of references and don't learn as much...since we don't learn as much there isn't as much to slow us down! Right!
My desk in all its glory...
I decided to get busy this week and work on organizing and may be a few cards...which I did! I had some questions about this little SideKick die cutter on my desk last week and thought I would answer them today. I bought this machine from The Stamps of Life and it is a Sizzix machine like the Big Shot that handles small dies...up to 2 1/2 inches and small embossing folders. Tim Holtz came out with a similar machine then a set of dies and folders called SideKick Side Orders! That I bought from Craft Direct. It will handle any small thinlet and framelet dies though without a problem and I don't have to trot out the bigger machines. I own the Vagabond and The Big Shot Pro also so from small to big I have it covered now. I have been using this one all week for cards.

|A card for a swap...they give you a layout and you swap with another!|
